KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Defense (MoD) says Afghan border forces targeted Pakistani military centres across the Durand Line in retaliatory strikes.

In a post on X, the MoD wrote that Pakistan planes bombed the houses of ordinary people in the Barmal district of Khost and Spera district of Paktika.

The ministry said: “In response to these attacks, the border forces of the IEA targeted Pakistan military centres using heavy weapons along the Durand Line.”

A clash between Afghan and Pakistani forces is still underway in Dand-i-Patan district, resulting in closure of Kharlachi gate.

Zabihullah Mujahid, chief spokesman for IEA, warned Pakistan’s deadly airstrikes in southeastern Khost and Paktika provinces will have consequences that the neighbour will be unable to control.

The Pakistani airstrikes killed three women and as many children in Paktika and two women in Khost, Mujahid claimed, saying two houses were also destroyed.
